How to clean your computer's flat screen

Windex & other chemicals are not the best solution for cleaning your screen. Instead, consider these alternatives.

  1. Dilute isopropyl alcohol (not rubbing alcohol, as it may contain oil) into a solution of no greater than 50% alcohol and 50% distilled water or bottled water. Tap water may leave mineral deposits on your screen.
  2. Put the solution in a small atomiser botter. You want to find a bottle that gives you a fine mist with each push of the top.
  3. Use a cotton cloth, lint-free microfiber cloth, or another very soft cloth. Paper towels may scratch the screen.
  4. Wipe the cloth against the screen in a consistent motion. Apply an even pressure, but make sure to not press hard as it may damage the components behind the screen.
